Forest Schools


About
We are running summer holiday sessions in our fab forest garden with fun and educational outdoor activities such as games, stories, nature activities, arts, crafts and tool use for a range of different ages.

Run by Lizzie from Bee Outdoors and Michaela from Well Wood


Eligibility
Our current forest school sessions are strictly for children aged 5-11 in receipt of free school meals (FSM). We’re aware that in some schools every child in years 1 and 2 receive FSM whether they would ordinarily be eligible or not. We are also aware that some children are home-schooled all year round. If this is the case for your child then they may still be eligible to attend our sessions if the parents meet the government’s FSM eligibility criteria. If your children attend a school in which their whole year automatically receives FSM or if you home-school your children all year round, please assess yourself using the criteria at this link Government’s FSM eligibility criteria.
